About this Cook
I enjoy cooking and experimenting with recipes and looking for new ways to enjoy favorite traditional meals.
My favorite things to cook
I love comfort foods, but many of them are unhealthy to eat on a daily basis, so I look for ways to add more fresh ingredients and cut fat without compromising the taste. I also like quick meals or meals that can be prepared ahead of time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to celebrate special holidays and celebrations by incorporating a food theme based on the occasion.
My cooking triumphs
I love to entertain! I enjoy planning the menu ahead of time and providing a variety of dishes. Most celebrations in our home incorporate food.
My cooking tragedies
I have a habit of making new recipes when entertaining, so there have been many times when I've had surprising outcomes from a new recipe. It helps to have a good sense of humor and just laugh it off.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini
Absolutely delicious!!! I'm giving 5 stars because the only two changes I made were small and per my family's tastes: smoked sausage instead of Italian and omitting the red wine. I'm glad I doubled the recipe! Served with caprese salad and crusty bread for a wonderful, light meal! My only recommendation would be to adjust salt and pepper seasoning at the end because different sausages may be saltier than others.

Easy Chicken Tetrazzini
Very easy and good! Good without changes, but for more flavor, I added some onions & garlic I had sautéed in butter. I also used chicken broth in place of the bouillon cubes/water. A store bought rotisserie chicken made it even easier. I just mixed everything together, including the cheese, put in the greased dish and then sprinkled more cheddar and some parmesan on top. Family loved it!!!

Quinoa and Black Beans
I followed the recipe as written, only reducing the amt of beans to 11/2 cans. It was delicious, however, after I refrigerated it overnight and added avocado tossed in lime juice, it was AMAZING! I plan to make it again, adding both avocado and cherry tomatoes. I highly recommend trying it either way. After everything is tossed together, taste it and adjust salt and pepper as needed. A little more salt made a big difference too. I love this recipe!!!
